Welcome to Andy Clark DVM, MBA

I am an Advisor to Equine Veterinary Businesses. My focus is to bring clarity to the business of Equine Practice.

Through an innovative virtual advisory program, I provide business coaching, solutions, and strategies. I have owned a single-doctor practice out of a garage as well as a regional referral hospital.

Two decades into my successful (financially and quality of life) career as an Equine Practitioner I had a nearly fatal injury while injecting a sacroiliac joint on a kind little Jumper named Joey. I emerged from rehab less abled than I was before.

My passion had always been working as an Equine Practitioner. In the blink of an eye, that ship had sailed. I needed a new way to make a living, hopefully near Equine Practice. I went back to school for an MBA with an entrepreneurship focus. Combining 20 years of medium to high end Equine Practice with my MBA training, I upskilled to become Andrew R Clark, DVM, MBA, LLC.
